No iconostasis. Built during that period when there was a reaction against the iconostasis? Still, it looks better than most modern Roman-rite temples. (It could almost be one - the length of the nave seems more Latin than Greek - Roman basilica design?)
Now it can be said that the pope's private Mass has been "low" for quite some time, and this was true of Pope Benedict. (I can't remember if there was an option to celebrate ad orientem or not, and if there was an option rather than ad orientem being necessary, if Benedict preferred it.) But it was rare to see a photo of Pope Benedict's private Mass, which was attended by a select few. Pope Francis has allowed photos to be taken and attendance has been opened up to certain individuals and groups. His ars celebrandi is an example for the Roman rite, whether intended or not.
Does a low rather than solemn Mass save "time" for the bishop of Rome, who is a busy man? And does Pope Francis' health prevent him from singing? Regarding the second question, even if he cannot sing recto tono, this does not mean that other ministers (such as the lectors) cannot sing their parts. As for the first point, one could argue that it is incumbent on the bishop to celebrate the liturgy well, even if it is "private," both for his own edification and those in attendance, and for the glory of God. To excuse the low Mass as being "good enough" for God is just that sort of minimalist attitude to the liturgy/Eucharist that is a problem for Roman Catholics. A "simple" liturgy should nonetheless engage all of man, his senses, intellect, will, and excellences, so that he might glorify God with all of his being.
This afternoon I was driving to a Chinese restaurant in Milpitas. 280/880 were rather empty today; most people were off the road watching the Super Bowl? You won't get that sort of abstaining from unnecessary travel on any other Lord's Day.
If I ever 'Dox,' it's not because I no longer believe in the primacy of Rome or some Roman Catholic teaching, but because the Orthodox are better in upholding patriarchy than the Latins. Despite any differences in culture or ethnicity, this could be the 'deal-breaker.'
